Home / Biography / Carbonized


Carbonized was conceived as an experimental side task in the late ’80s by certain members of death steel band Therion plus some of their friends from within Sweden’s incestuous extreme music scene. Seeking to have just a little fun outside their ultra-serious and depressing primary rings, Therion vocalist/guitarist Jonas Derouche and drummer Piotr Wawrzeniuk had been joined by potential Serpent, Therion, and Entombed bassist Lars Rosenberg and visitor vocalist Matti Karki from Dismember to jam on some ideas for the psychedelic/grindcore cross types. Their wild, most likely drug-fuelled musings led to 1991’s bizarre For the Protection opus, which repulsed as much listeners since it attracted using its quirky aural masterpieces. Yet, it just hinted on the bizarre loss of life jazz the group would concoct within the next year’s a lot more “out there” Disharmonization record — generally regarded as their finest hour. Commitments with their regular rings kept the music artists busy in a long time, but Carbonized reconvened for your final freak-out in 1996, leading to that year’s Screaming Devices. Part pisstake, component groundbreaking landmark (you end up being the judge), the LP delved ever deeper into psychedelics and intensifying metal tests, quoting the music of everybody from Green Floyd to Sonic Youngsters to Dark Flag to Voivod. You can just imagine what limitations they’ll cross as long as they ever record once again.
